Racist Extremism In Central And Eastern Europe, Cas Mudde

Cas Mudde

Based in part on the results of a unique, comparative research project, the aim of this article is threefold: (1) to provide a comparative summary of racist extremism in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE); (2) to compare the situation of racist extremism in CEE to that inWestern Europe; and (3) to come to some further insights about racist extremism in the region.

At best, immigration has been a catalyst for most ERPs in certain periods of time. Their ideology and broader ...

Right-Wing Extremism Analyzed. A Comparative Analysis Of The Ideologies Of Three Alleged Right-Wing Extremist Parties (Npd, Ndp, Cp'86), Cas Mudde

Cas Mudde

The so-called 'third wave' of right-wing extremism has taken both society and social science by storm.

In the second part, these features are first conceptualized and second used in a comparative analysis of the ideologies of three alleged right-wing extremist parties (the Dutch CP'86, the German NPD and ...
